We had a thread awhile back about trying to find out who is chartering Silhouette on Dec. 16 of this year. Heres the answer in press release from Celebrity. Not a charter. Its a Coachella cruise

You beat me to it, I was listening to NPR on the way home from work just now, & they announced it... according to them, there will be two of these cruises in Dec. The Cochella festival is a pretty big deal here S. CA

I am having one of those "I am SO over 50 and am such a fuddyduddy" moment. I took a look at the link provided by dkretired, and have to admit that I don't recognize any of them. But as a shareholder I think this is an excellent idea.

I am now officially OLD. Never heard of any of those groups. Now, if you say MegaDeath, Supertramp, and Poison, then you'd have something.

I'm young-ish. I've been to Coachella. I know a fair portion of the bands playing.

I am so glad I am scheduled on the cruise BEFORE this one. I do not see how the ship is not going to get totally trashed. Yikes!

I was thinking the exact same thing. Although Celebrity will probably have record alcohol sales!

Same here, I thought it had something to do with Coach bags...

I don't know. More of a drug culture....plus, there will be a TON of liquor smuggled on. Only time will tell.

Hi Everyone,

I feel soooooooooo old. I read the list and dont know who any of the performers are. At first, I wondered if it was a Coach Bag mega sale Cruise !!!

Must say, I'm a bit concerned about potential damage. Let's hope all goes well, and everyone has a great time.

Now, if there was a Springsteen cruise I'd be first in line

My husband and I were just talking about the ship getting "trashed" but after he started reading about people complaining about the cost of the cruise/concert on the Coachella website, I think this may cater to a different caliber of Coachella fan. While I love a good music festival I prefer to do it more first class and not get involved in the whole camping/trashing/getting dirty thing, we get a hotel, etc.. I'm just out for good music and we have the money to go to a festival and do it right.

Well, if THAT were the case, I'd have booked a suite so I'd have enough room for all the shopping bags!
